Beware of Consultancy Services for Funding Bids

 

Lottery has sent out this reminder to watch out for consultants who offer services to help you with your funding bid. Some businesses promote their services by telling potential customers about the Big Lottery Fund. They may offer consultancy services or imply they are acting on the Big Lottery Fund’s behalf. Some offer to help youfill in the form or do it for you in return for payment.                                         high-res-corporate-logo-blue

The application process is free and they believe paying for external consultancy advice is unnecessary. The Big Lottery Fund does not work with or endorse the services of any consultant and they can’t provide funding for any costs, commission or fees that they charge you to make an application form. They ask that you please complete the application form yourself and apply directly to them.

If you are thinking about applying for funding and are not sure where to start simply give the Advice Team a call on 0300 123 7110 or email  advicescotland@biglotteryfund.org.uk. They are there to provide pre application advice and information.
